CEO and Founder, Jim Fitzgerald turned to AdvisoryCloud to seek advisors that would add value for his company, specifically in the areas of brand recognition, data management, and digital marketing analytics. Although Taradel is currently an independently-funded private company, he thought advisors would also give him insight for how to find the right person to become an investment partner to help with the overall growth of his business.
Finding advisors who are experts in data management and digital marketing analytics was the first priority for Taradel. Using AdvisoryCloud’s platform, Jim was able to intuitively and easily search for these specific qualifications and found many candidates with the exact experience he needed. After speaking with eight candidates and receiving guidance from his designated AdvisoryCloud Account Manager, Jim selected four individuals for Taradel to hire as advisors. Jim worked with AdvisoryCloud to schedule meetings, create agendas, and set deliverables for each of his advisors to achieve within a certain timeframe.
“The advisors I found through AdvisoryCloud have really gone above and beyond my expectations. The concept behind AdvisoryCloud is smart, and I’m pleased with my decision to build an advisory board using their platform. Overall, I’ve been very impressed with my experience- I’ve already recommended AdvisoryCloud to a handful of peers looking for business advice and expert guidance,” said Jim.
Jim plans to hold quarterly meetings and build strong relationships between his advisors, strengthening their bond as a team moving forward. He is conducting monthly meetings with each advisor individually to check in on personal goals and ask questions specific to each advisor’s expertise.
Whether you’re a startup, non-profit, or a global corporation, advisors play a critical role in helping with business challenges, exploring opportunities, and providing advice on projects or key decisions.
